by PaymentsJournal 0

Jakarta, August 04th, 2016. Indosat Ooredoo is announcing the launch of its
mobile payment acceptance solution D-Pay. Indosat Ooredoo is collaborating
with GoSwiff International, a financial services solutions provider, as
technology and business partner, and with BNI as the acquiring bank for the

D-Pay is a financial service that gives merchants the freedom to accept
mobile payments, allowing their customers to make payments using debit or
credit card (Visa, MasterCard, JCB) and via eWallet, anywhere, anytime at
enabled D-Pay merchants.

D-Pay transforms merchants’ mobile devices into multifunctional payment
platforms, enabling merchants that do not have access to the relevant
infrastructure or do not generate sufficient revenue to qualify for traditional
Point-of-Sale (POS) services, to accept card payments by shifting to Mobile
Point-of-Sale (mPOS). This shift will empower merchants to increase their
sales and number of customers, and ultimately grow their businesses. From
the customer’s perspective, mPOS will make the digital payment experience
more secure and convenient.

“D-Pay is the latest product from our Mobile Financial Business. In addition to
our current products – electronic wallet, bill payments, eCommerce payments,
domestic and international money transfer and branchless banking, D-Pay will
help reduce cash collection and logistics costs for our eCommerce partners,
which will in turn benefit customers with lower prices and assured deliveries”,
said Prashant Gokarn, Chief of New Business and Innovation Officer Indosat
Ooredoo. “In Indonesia, payment solutions are still in an early stage of growth,
as most retailers still use cash for payments or charge customers for credit
card use. In addition to eCommerce companies, D-Pay is the answer for
Small and Medium retailers, who need alternative payment methods but their
business size makes standard Banking solutions expensive”.

The use of digital payments is helping create a new generation of merchants,
who are able to accept payments in methods other than cash, and also
benefits customers by making the transaction easier, safer and more efficient.
“We are proud to have been selected by Indosat Ooredoo to provide mobile
payment solutions in such a vast market as Indonesia. With many years in
serving the Indonesian customers, we look forward to serving local merchants
even better,” said Stefano Diemmi, Head of Global Accounts, GoSwiff

“We were looking for a solution to expand the usage of E-Money for cashless
payments, which requires a card acceptance method to read E-Money cards
called Dompetku”, said Randy Pangalla, Head of Mobile Finance Group
Indosat Ooredoo. “It’s a strong collaboration with GoSwiff as technology
partner and BNI as the acquiring bank. We believe our expertise will
strengthen the partnership in market acquisitions and innovation, while
providing better services for our customers. This partnership will be
revolutionary not just in Mobile Payment landscape in Indonesia but also in
shaping consumers’ attitude toward a cashless society”.

On top of that D-Pay comes packaged with Data, Voice and SMS, to support
Retailers in running their daily business activities.
